Combo Auctions

Did you ever shop in a combo auction on 

Combo auctions include more than one product. If we win a combo auction, we win all of the items included in the auction. 

Two friends have a great time cooking in the kitchen.

For example, one combo auction active at the time of this writing includes a high-speed blender and a multi-use 8-quart pressure cooker. These are two items every woman ought to have in her kitchen. 

Blender and Pressure Cooker Bundle

This combo auction that includes a blender and pressure cooker has a BIN of $230. So far, based on 83 reviews of these products, this combo auction received an overall rating of 4.89 out of a possible 5.0 which is a very high customer-satisfaction rating.

The professional-performance blender that has 1800 watts at peak power, 26000 RPM, and has 6 stainless-steel blades. It has an easy-to-use blending speed dial with blue LED and can easily crush nuts, frozen fruits and vegetables to make shakes, smoothies and frozen beverages. The BPA-free pitcher holds 68 fluid ounces and has an 8.5 cup capacity.

For more detailed information about the blender see the auction listing.

The 8-quart pressure cooker is large enough for 6 to 8 servings. It’s a 10-in-1 multi-use pressure cooker and, according to the auction description, it “cooks food up to 70 percent faster.” It also “combines the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, egg cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, cake maker warmer, searing plan and sterilizer.” 

Another great feature is that this pressure cooker has 16 smart preset programs that takes the guesswork out of cooking. Best of all, in my opinion, are the certified safety measures – 10 safety mechanisms, including automatic pressure control, patented lid locking system with photoelectric switch sensor for added safety. 

For more detailed information, see the auction description.

A brief history of pressure cookers

A French-born physicist Denis Papin invented the first pressure cooker in 1679. According to my research, “The cooker heats water to produce very hot steam which forces the temperature inside the pot as high as 266 degrees F (130 degrees C), significantly higher than the maximum heat possible in an ordinary saucepan.”

My parents had 14 children to feed so having a pressure cooker and knowing how to can and preserve food was very important. In the old days, most people used a pressure cooker to prevent food from spoiling and safely preserve food like green beans and sweet corn during the winter months in quart-sized canning jars. Minnesota usually has long, cold and difficult winters. Pressure cookers from those days were rather dangerous. When I was a child in the 1950s to the 1960s my mother often asked me to watch the needle in the safety valve or regulator on top of the pressure cooker lid. If the needle  moved too far into the danger area, it meant it could explode. I never learned how to can food because I thought those old pressure cookers were too dangerous.

Thankfully, today’s pressure cookers have come a long way, and  with all the built in safety features, they no longer pose the same dangers as the old pressure cookers did.
